you may have to start CLISP with "clisp -K full".
Under Windows, interrupting (with C-c C-b) doesn't work. Emacs sends
a SIGINT signal, but the signal is either ignored or CLISP exits
immediately.
+On Windows, CLISP may refuse to parse filenames like

Function arguments and local variables aren't displayed properly in
the backtrace. Changes to CLISP's C code are needed to fix this
problem. Interpreted code is usually easer to debug.
